When the German army captured Lwow in 1941, Poland's third largest city contained a vibrant jewish community of 160,000 people. Because the Final Solution began there so early, no other Jewish community of similar size came so close to complete eradication, and no other aspect of the Holocaust is as poorly recorded. Samuel Drix, a respected Lwow doctor survived, but lost every member of his large family and almost all his friends. He endured nearly a year in the Janowska concentration camp, helping fellow prisoners stay alive. Then he escaped - miraculously - and hid with a Polish farm couple until the Red Army arrived. Nazi anti-semitism was swapped for the Russian kind. A broken man, he contemplated suicide until a woman's love gave him renewed hope. He was to witness at the war crimes trials, where killers were brought to justice.
